Tuna Steaks with Salsa

Harriet Stichter of Milford, Indiana relates, "Fish is often served with salsa in restaurants. Why not try it at home? Mango and carrots make this salsa unique."

    I used a different mango salsa recipe because I didn't have the carrots and am not a huge fan of coriander or cumin. However, I loved the simple salt and pepper on the tuna that allowed for the real flavor of the tuna to shine. We grilled it for barely 4 minutes on each side so that the middle was warm yet still pink. It was so yummy, I am making it again tonight for company!

    I made some personal adjustments to the dish since I don't like coriander or cumin. I added chopped serrano pepper to the salsa. The tuna steaks I marinated in olive oil, pressed garlic, black pepper, salt and balsamic vinegar before broiling, added a tablespoon of Kikkoman teriyaki sauce before broiling. The salsa was great and the tuna tender and tasty just loved it.
